    Thanks in advance for your inputs.

    Transfer the file to the Unix system (in binary) and then unzip it.

    Stolze,

    transferring the file to unix using ftp in binary mode is fine. But unzip in unix I am not able to understand. Could you please let me know.

    Thanks and Regards,

    unzip on Unix is just like unzip on Windows, only slashes in the file path are slanted the other way.

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    If you don't have an "unzip" utility, just use "zip" with option -e (if I remember correctly).

    Regarding the slashes, it is a good habit to use forward slashes also on Windows because it avoids portability issues in that realm.
